Positively Stoke-on-Trent Garden

The ‘Positively Stoke-on-Trent’ garden concept has been prepared by the City Council Team. It represents a city with a new clarity of purpose and new sources of energy. It draws on the city’s natural resources and plugs directly into the new dynamics and a new era of growth.

Positively Stoke-on-Trent Garden

The garden’s clear lines, circuits, solar panels and high-tech materials, reflect the technological revolution. The glass pavilion reflects water, earth and air: the city’s emerging sustainable energy ambitions. The planting is inspired by nature’s re-colonisation of Stoke-on-Trent, reconnecting the city to nature and a cleaner and greener future. The garden conveys Stoke-on-Trent’s energy asa dynamic and creative place of opportunity for all.

Positively Stoke-on-Trent Garden

Birch, Amelanchier, grasses, ferns and flowering perennials create a naturalised woodland feel which gradually transforms to a more formal style with ornamental plants delivering the simplicity and beauty of a future proofed urban garden environment. Edible landscapes are blossoming in the city and the garden will include plants such as wild strawberry to reflect this productive theme.
